Last month the Student Professionalism and Ethics Association (SPEA) received a generous donation from TUSDM alumnae Dr. Janice Conrad, who sent a check with the award money from winning the Thomas Winkler Distinguished Service Award from the American College of Dentistry.
If you haven’t heard of SPEA (or the ACD), we are an organization focused on encouraging, maintaining, and promoting the further learning of ethical and professional behavior in the dental profession. SPEA is your friendly liaison for ethical queries or when you want policy changes at Tufts.
Helen Yang, a recently graduated dentist, is working on a book to help pre-dental students apply for school. Her team is compiling a book filled with a selection of really strong dental school personal statements to help pre-docs with this crucial step of the dental school application. They would love to have a strong representation from Tufts.
Read on if you want to be published in this exciting project! The deadline to submit is Monday, June 19!
The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) student organization is structured to support those pre-doctoral students who, through military sponsorship, are committed to serving their country both as a dental professional and a military officer. HPSP proudly presents our 8 graduated D17s, our newest captains and lieutenants! HPSP had organized a senior night to celebrate and recognize our graduated 4th years and our faculty/student members who have military ties.
Our D17s showed amazing dedication, compassion, and leadership throughout their years at TUSDM, and there is no doubt that they will succeed not only as dentists, but as military officers. We’re incredibly excited for them as they embark their new journey in their designated military bases. You guys will be missed! Thank you for your service!

Congratulations for your graduation! You’ve reached this huge milestone through hard work and determination!
You were the first class we had for book groups. Remember the lessons from Henrietta Lacks. Some of you were really shy back then. Being part of your professional development has been a privilege.
Many of you really stepped up to help your “littles” transition into clinic, going above and beyond, especially when the D’19s needed help in the IDP 3 workshops doing exams on one another. TAs or not, you gave up your time and taught them something to make their lives easier. Thank you so much!
